Description

"Entries are numbered and organized alphabetically by topic. For each entry, the quotation is given first, followed by author, the work in which it appeared (when appropriate), and date of origin. A second section cross-references authors to topic/quotation numbers, a third section provides a detailed keyword and phrase cross-reference to specific quotations by number"--Provided by publisher.

Texte du rabat

Every public speaker can benefit from an apt quotation to illuminate a speaking point. This compilation of 2,116 quotations in 263 broad subject categories is useful for political, motivational, and other public speakers along with speech writers, planners, and researchers. The topics range from Ability ("Out of my lean and low ability I'll lend you something"--Shakespeare) to Youth ("I suppose it's difficult for the young to realize that one may be old without being a fool"--William Somerset Maugham). Each entry is credited to its author, the work in which it appeared (when appropriate), and the date of origin. There are two indexes: of authors (to topics and their entry numbers) and of highly detailed keywords-in-context (to their entries).
